Description

Color woodblock, 15 1/4 X 10 1/2 inches, ink and color on paper. Shin Hanga print by Kawase Hasui of the early 18th century Nezu Shrine. Captured on a snowy day, Hasui creates a photographic effect showing the entrance in a cropped view. Architectural features are sharply detailed against the white background; the marshy walkway coming in from the right leads the viewer's eye into the print.
